This is Cormac Scanlan's second full length album, this time under the alias of Ichor. Whereas his first album Ditokous Deiparous could be described as being an avant-garde take on ambient electronica, Lucid Dreams Of Unitary Urbanism is much more soundscape orientated.
Whilst still often reaching deep into electronica, on tracks such as Never Truly Trusted, and the purely Csound created Everything In Modulation, many of the tracks contain a variety of recorded and organic sounds, and very occasionally even guitars and keyboards.
The album follows the ethereal journey of a man on a lucid dream, psychogeographically drifting though the urban landscape of his imagination, recreating the world in his image.

I like this alot, it reminds me a bit of some of On Land era Eno and some of the atmospheres from the Myst series, but with a unique edge to it. Nice evolution from your Cormac Scanlan stuff (which i also really like[do you have an album cover for that by the way?]). Anyway, keep up the good work, you have an interesting sound here.
